Attraction details
Owner description: Surrender to an age of bravery and honor and witness epic battles of steel and steed during our tournament spectacular. From ringside seats, discover a feast for the eyes and appetite. An evening of enchantment and excitement for all ages. Guests are taken back in time and encouraged to cheer for one of six "Knights of the Realm," named after historic regions of medieval Spain, while feasting on a four-course banquet served in true medieval, pre-silverware fashion. The newest production features amazing lighting, costumes, choreography, exciting battle scenes, falconry, new horse dressage elements and a fresh musical score by the world renowned composer Daniel May.

We have something similar to this in TN...only it's the South v. the North...it was a nice change though. My girls (5,8,& 10) loved it! The food isn't so bad either. :) If you have a family and you plan on doing activities and eating...why not combine the two?! Kill two birds with one stone...worth it!

The show is very well put on. The actors/staff are all very dedicated and friendly. The horsemanship was the star for me, and there are some excellent stunts as well. Plenty of food and fun. Will highly recommend it to friends.

Ok, so you may not think of yourself as a history geek, but nonetheless, you still wanna do this thing at LEAST once in your life--I've been fortunate enough to make it twice--once with my mom years ago and this month with my beloved husband and enjoyed the HECK outta the whole experience! Call early to get the showtimes and arrive at LEAST an hour early because lines can be long (though inside with AC). The cost may shock you a little ($51.95 currently, per person), but keep in mind this is not just dinner, it's a castle with lots to see and do and filled with kindly, fun staff in full costume, from the ticket-taker and bar-wench to the King and the Knights-at-arms. You will be amazed, entertained, have plenty of fun photo ops and even a chance to get 'knighted' by the King if you're having a birthday (sign up early online or by phone). Yes, the gift shops inside have crazy-high prices, but who said you have to buy anything? It's just cool to look at what they have. The great hall filled with huge tapestries and paintings of--yeah, you got it--Medieval Times, knightly armor, swords, and the pub area, plus ($3 to see a tiny 'dungeon' with real-looking torture devices for those who are truly curious), it's all in fun and most people there seem to be having the time of their lives--no long, hot Disney World type lines here--big, air-conditioned halls, and you can buy something to drink if you're thirsty. They will lead everybody up to take a quickie photo with the 'King', which later at dinner you will be shown in a nice frame if you want to buy it ($20). There is a full pub/bar for drinks, beer, frozen daiquiris, and such and you can buy the glass--I didn't because the prices are absurd. Before you enter the dining hall you'll be given a paper crown, which, no, you don't have to wear if you don't wanna feel like a goofball (I did not), but you'll have to at least hold in your hand until you are seated because each crown is color-coordinated with one of six dining sections devoted to the Knight of each color: yellow&red, yellow&black, black&white, blue, green, red&black. Twelve long tables to each color-section with twelve seats each--you cheer for your own knight and hiss/boo at the opposition (don't worry, it's all just clean fun). A word of advice--the eats are quite good, but since it was not common in the medieval ages to use forks and knives, you won't be given these, so get used to the idea of eating with your hands...and I hope you come HUNGRY! You are seated at your table, all facing the arena so everybody gets a good view, and your serving wench introduces herself ("I am your serving wench, Kaitlyn--you can call me Kaitlyn or hey, Wench! and I"ll answer to either!") A thin tomato bisque is served first and a small chunk of garlic bread--don't ask for more cuz you ain't gonna get it. The next course is a HALF of a roasted chicken, VERY tender and tasty and easy to pull apart and eat with your fingers (napkins and moist towelettes included), a juicy pork rib, and herb-crusted baked potato half. Drinks are modern (coke, coffee, tea, beer--the beer-pub-wench comes around separately to take the order). Vegetarians, have no fear! When you call for the ticket let them know you are not a meat-eater and get the King's Bean Stew, pita and hummus, carrot and celery sticks dinner. Dessert is a "dragon tail" (triangular apple turnover, no icing, but still tasty). Watch the show and dine well! Knightly games, races, a falcon flying, gorgeous horses, and still more gorgeous men in knightly costume and full armor await you, plus a simple little vignette with the 'King' and his daughter on the balcony overlooking the arena. I had a great time smacking over my roast chicken, toasting my hubby with ale, watching the beautiful horses and costumes and games, and by the time you finish up, you will be pretty much happy about the whole deal and OK with spending $51.95 for it--HINT!!!! Check the local Myrtle Beach newspapers (those free ones at the hotel) for coupons--we actually paid $11 less for our tickets each (but, if you buy them over the phone they will charge you $4 processing fee--most people, like me, will pay it because it's still a deal, and they don't wanna take the chance of going and not being able to get a ticket at the door--which is a distinct possibility cuz this place is TRES popular!) Dress neatly but comfortably, most folks are casual, though no bathing suits and beach wear please. I think a costume would be awesome, but not many folks bring those on vacation--just keep in mind you want some cool photos so you might want to dress up nicely for those just in case. Go, have fun (no smoking inside, sorry), drink at the pub, smile at your serving wench, enjoy your finger-lickin' good feast and take lots of pics--you won't regret it and you'll have a great memory to carry you through until the next time you wanna take a dive into Medieval Times!

The food was fantastic (no silverware, you eat like in the castle days) the show was wonderful and loaded with fun and competition and audience involvement in cheering for your knight represented by your section you are seated in. I have been there 2 times (on 2 separate vacations in July 1997 and Aug. 2013) and would definitely go again!
